A versatile yet simple-to-use belay device for general rock climbing and mountaineering.
The Black Diamond ATC-XP Belay Device is a durable, versatile belay device that features multiple friction modes to handle nearly any situation or rope diameter.
Thanks to the machined windows through the body, it's 30% lighter than it used to be. It uses friction grooves on each rope slot to generate three times the holding power, and the reversible design allows them to be bypassed for smoother abseiling or 'paying-out'.
- High-friction mode offers 3 times greater hold and stopping power than regular friction mode
- Durable cable holds its shape and resists getting caught up between ropes
- Versatile design accepts ropes from 7.7 to 11 mm
- Weight: 64g (2.3oz)

Great device!, 15 October 2016
This was my first belay device and has taken me from messing around at the wall to some big multi-pitch classics. Never had any issues with it, plays rope out smoothly and grips well in a fall situation (I'm a pretty slim guy and some of my climbing partners are pretty big guys and never had any issues with rope slip or anything). Looking to replace now as I want something to belay direct from the anchor so going to get the guide version, but would be hard pressed to stray from black diamond!
Gives smooth payout of the rope when giving slack/lowering my partner. It also grips tight on the teeth side like you would expect. Haven't tried with 8.5mm ropes, but 10mm are fine. It's pretty cool being able to see the rope feed through the device.
Basically, it does exactly what a belay should do and it looks good!

Far less grabby than other basic devices I have used and it happily deals with any rope diameter.
